Email hasn't been working - fixed now
« on: September 20, 2016, 11:06:22 PM »
So....I just discovered I had the email notifications set up improperly  :-[  Sorry, guys. 

It's fixed now, but the problem has existed since I took over the forums from Taranis in July.  :-\

If you sent an email to another member from these forums the person never received it. Likewise if you sent another member a PM, that person didn't get an email notifying him/her.  That person would only know by coming to these forums and seeing the notification on the "My Messages" tab.

Never thought to test emails. I don't know why  :P

weird enough it use to tell me what the message was when it was in my email or do the big ones don't show up now?

I believe if it's a PM the text of the PM is included in the email.  If it's some other notification such as topic replies it's not.

I don't see any errors in the logs, so I'm sorry, I can't account for this situation. Can you see your PM from the forum "My  Messages -> Read Your Messages" page?

I saw on your forum post that it works for you on chrome but not edge.  Also it works fine for other people.  This tells me there is something in Edge that doesn't work with something in this page.

I've discovered that it's a known issue with Microsoft Edge.  This link is to a post in the forums for the package that these forums use (simple machines forums)

Hope to see you in game soon  :)
i dunno maybe it was to big to show up in the thing but you would think it would trim it if it was.
